Offering spacious quality accommodation, the villa is ideal for large family groups, extended family gatherings or 2 or 3 families holidaying together, and with your own private swimming pool. Its location gives you the best of both worlds, in the heart of the lovely authentic countryside, yet the Charente-Maritime coast is easily accessible for day trips. It is well placed for visiting the major tourist attractions, but you don’t need to go further than the nearby bathing lake to keep the children amused. Villa Salena is the holiday home you’ve been dreaming of.
Reduced mobility : The downstairs double bedroom and bathroom may be suitable for people with reduced mobility. If you are concerned by this, please consult us before making a reservation.
